Microsoft has released Service Pack 2 for its Office 2003 collaboration suite, which includes a number of security, stability and performance enhancements.
The service pack includes an enhancement to Outlook to help prevent phishing and an improved junk e-mail filter, said Microsoft. Junk messages are rendered as plain text, preventing HTML information from being viewed inadvertently. Links are also now disabled in junk e-mail messages with SP2.
Microsoft said the service pack addressed application stability with fixes and enhancements for Office applications and servers.
Finally, the service pack provides support for SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Windows SharePoint Services and Microsoft Office InfoPath 2003 have been updated to include support for the upcoming releases of SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005.
The service pack is anything from 50Mbyte to more than 100Mbyte in size to download, depending on which components are selected.
